Bumbleride Indie Twin Double Stroller Review – Thoughts By Brandi

“I just want to start by saying that this post is NOT sponsored by Bumbleride but I have a deep love for our Bumbleride Indie Twin double stroller that is so worth sharing with all of you. It is hands down my favorite double stroller for day-to-day use, walking around town and tackling tough terrain. The Bumbleride Indie twin can handle just about anything you throw at it and we couldn’t be happier with our double stroller.

Not only is this my preferred stroller, the Bumbleride Indie Twin is the babes preferred stroller as well! It’s tall, the shade is huge, and the ride is so smooth. Because we’ve mostly given up napping, we often walk to the park and picnic and then walk home and these two always fall asleep on the walk home. It’s the perfect “put your baby to sleep” stroller. If I know we are going to be some place where I need the babes to sit quietly and comfortably in a stroller for any extended period of time, the bumbleride is my go-to.

There are so many reasons why I love this stroller… it’s not only my favorite for the babes, but it’s my favorite for myself. It’s surprisingly difficult to find a double stroller that can go over just about any terrain with two 3 year olds in it while I push with one hand and drink my coffee. The Bumbleride Indie Twin glides over just about anything with ease, which makes pushing it more enjoyable, and less like a chore.

Here’s a list of reasons why I am such a fan of the Bumbleride Indie Twin.

-One-handed push

-Tough rubber grip for running and standing fold (won’t tear like foam handle bars)

-Standing slim fold (the smallest among all other double side by side strollers) please note that if you’re going from a single to a double, this stroller will still feel big but compared to other side by side all terrain strollers, it is in fact the smallest/most compact!

-Removable and washable fabric, even the canopies can be taken off and washed!

-Slim design, fits through all standard doorways, even the tiny ones in old buildings!

-4 wheels vs 3 which makes for more stability and smoother stroll!

-All wheel suspension (a must have for coffee runs)

-Air filled tires, sometimes this is a pain but for the most part, we don’t have issues and it makes jogging and trails so much smoother

-Appearance, it’s sleek and the color options are amazing, we have the Maritime blue and love it.

-Storage, the biggest storage basket on a side by side double, two storage pockets on the backs of each seat and two zip storage pouches on the backside of each canopy! Also a little toy or water bottle storage on the inside of each seat for the kiddos to use!

-Easy add on glider board, I will say, sometimes the glider board gets in the way but if you take smaller steps, it’s not a big deal! Extends the life of the stroller making it easy to use with 3 kids!

-Lay flat design so can be used from birth without any add ons… you can buy the bassinet but you don’t have to!

-Adjustable foot rest, so great for napping and for little legs!

-Extended canopy!

If you use your stroller often and for long distances, this is the stroller for you! I don’t think this is a great stroller if you’re a speed runner but for the average jogger like myself and my husband, this has met all our running needs.

There are a few things I wish this stroller had, mainly a decelerating handbrake for our extremely hilly neighborhood but because it’s so light and easy to push, it’s also easy to navigate down hills. We have logged miles upon miles on this stroller and it is still going strong. From photography walks to beach trips, the Bumbleride Indie Twin has yet to disappoint us.” – Brandi

My verdict: All-terrain stroller with beautiful design

Bumbleride Indie Twin Review

“This is more expensive side-by-side double stroller, but the quality and versatility are definitely worth the money. Bumbleride Indie Twin accepts two infant car seats and two bassinets so parents can use it from birth.

It’s not only a top-notch twin stroller, but also a great double stroller for siblings. All thanks to excellent stability and weight distribution.

The regular seats feature near-flat recline, there are also adjustable calf rests.You can actually use the full recline and calf rest raised all the way up to convert the seat into infant-mode. It provides secured and enclosed space for small infant.

It can be even used for a newborn baby but since the seat is facing front, you wouldn’t be able to observe your baby (except for the viewing window on the canopy). That’s why I think getting a bassinet for newborn baby is better option, particularly for frequent walks.

But it’s nice to have a newborn-ready seat, especially since this double stroller is quite pricey and not all parents may have extra budget for the carrycots.

The maximum weight capacity is 45 lbs for each seat. Based on customer reviews I can tell you that Bumbleride Indie Twin Double Stroller will most certainly serve you up to 3-3.5 years.

I love how well-padded and cushy the seats are. They are perfect for naps on-the-go, no matter how old your babies are.

Another noteworthy features are the two large canopies that extend really far. They even pass over the bumper bars! Even when the seat is fully reclined the canopy provides great amount of shade. Thanks to that you can be sure that the sun won’t disturb your kiddo’s nap. No more worries about sun in baby’s eyes!…” READ MORE

Beautiful design, easy to handle and great features!

“We LOVE our Bumbleride strollers and have recommended them to all our family and friends. The indie twin is so easy to push and maneuver even with two kids in it! It’s also great for infants – I put my 2 month old into it without having to use the carseat which just makes life easier! The harness is really comfortable and easy to use for a baby. I love the new extended sunshades to keep the kids shaded and the storage space below is great. Its also just a beautifully designed product.” – Rebecca

Adventuring with Bumbleride – Honeywild

“We recently received this beautiful double stroller for all of our hiking/outdoor adventures that are too much for baby wearing, and oh my goodness… we are in love! The tires are truly all-terrain and make even the rockiest trails feel smooth. Mabel falls asleep for almost every walk we do in this stroller. Nora loves being able to see Mabel; she can just look right over and there’s her bff smiling at her! I never thought I’d want/need a side-by-side but it’s been amazing!”

“The handle is pivot height-adjustable, and the seats can both recline fully or sit upright. With a magnetic window opening, it’s easy to peek on the girls while they snooze/snack/chat away while taking in our scenery. The large canopy is seriously one of the best I’ve seen/used. It’s already pretty big, then two extra panels fold out so they can truly be protected from the sun, but with the mesh window, still having plenty of air.”

Fistbumps for best all terrain double stroller

“Fist bumps because best jogger/all-terrain/side-by-side stroller ever! 😉 I truly LOVE the simplicity of this stroller. I feel like double strollers (especially side-by-sides) are usually really bulky and just have too much going on. The minimalist design, colors, and all-around structure is what first attracted me to this stroller, the safety, smooth rides, materials used, and the list goes on is what made us want it for our lifestyle. We’ve gone running/jogging, rocky trails, steep hill hikes… and it aces the test every time.”

“All in all we are extremely pleased with this stroller. It meets our needs and exceeded our expectations. Oh! And it fits through doorways, ha! I’ve taken it both to Target, the Zoo, the grocery store with zero issues and don’t feel like a semi-truck walking around with it either. It’s a beautiful stroller and we are extremely grateful for the opportunity to use and review it!”

Indie Twin Review – Today’s Parent Magazine

 

“BEST FOR Parents looking for a double stroller that can navigate any terrain.

TOP BENEFITS Deep seat recline, generous canopy, air-filled tires with traction, machine washable fabrics.

BOTTOM LINE The Bumbleride Indie Twin is a double stroller that’s built to manage tougher terrains with ease, while ensuring your kids are comfy and secure.

Bumbleride is known for their top-notch, sturdy strollers, and the Bumbleride Indie Twin is no exception. With its solid steel frame, durable fabric and air-filled tires, it’s built to last. At 36 pounds and 30-inches wide, the Indie Twin isn’t exactly the kind of lightweight double stroller you’re likely to fold up and toss in the trunk for a quick jaunt to the store, but if you want a double stroller that can handle snow, sand, grass and gravel with ease, this is one smooth ride. The side-by-side adjustable seats offer unblocked views for both kids, so no one will be squished or get stuck looking at the back of their sibling’s seat. Environmentally conscious parents will appreciate Bumbleride’s commitment to using recycled materials to produce their Oeko-Tex certified fabrics, which are PVC and phthalate free, and come in some pretty great colours, too.

FINAL WORD

All of our parent testers rated the Bumbleride Indie Twin as very good in terms of quality and style, and good to very good for ease of use, value and overall satisfaction…more” – Today’s Parent
